Even if these features were “free”, Rage II performance would be far from best. In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. It seems despite die shrink ATI did not made any architectural advancements, at least not in 3d.

It turned out R2c has the same memory clock wall as R3- after MHz it gives up. This item doesn’t belong on this page.
ATI RAGE IIC graphics card – RAGE IIC – 2 MB
Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often iic on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators.
Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels per second. ATi also kept on missing opportunity to implemented vertex specular highlights under Direct3d, despite having the feature in their proprietary Atti.

This is not much of surprise from a chip without texture caching, still despite this optimization in synthetic tests the performance drop of bilinear filtering remains rather big. Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: As for driver bugs, I found only one serious, objects are ari in Battlezone. See details for full description. Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak.
It seems despite die shrink ATI did not made any architectural advancements, at least not in 3d. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. This page was last edited on 7 Juneat Overall While ATI had a horrible Windows driver reputation since Mach64, and the packages have scary high amount of files, my test system was stable and everything went as it should.
ATI Technologies ATI RAGE IIC (109-49300-00) 4MB AGP Graphics adapter
Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless. NT put them both on the AGP bus and switched between them, and so the board could only operate as a single Rage Pro with the performance of a Rage Fury card.
To my knowledge Rage II did not get any rahe than this. Driver selected VT3 string, interesting Experience 3d gaming with mere 2 MB is very limiting even if the chip was powerful. As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards.
This item may or may not be in original packaging. Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt. The RAGE IIC delivers 3D performance which is unmatched in its class, along with comprehensive 3D features including perspectively correct texturing, mip-mapping, bilinear and trilinear filtering, Z-buffering, video texturing, Gouraud shading, and alpha blending.

There is one suspicious image quality issue, textures often seem to have reduced color range. This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception. Rage II in person I bought this board with four memory chips in hope it is 4 MB, but it seems only raeg to get first Rage II with such capacity is through cards with memory expansion module. Trending Price New.
Again and better Autumn came and before anyone could yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D compatibility, ATI unveiled second chip of the line. This dage the architecture was definitely up to date with all of the critical 3d features working. There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2.
Even if these features were “free”, Rage II performance would be far from best. Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it.
Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an rgae graphics processor.
